You are almost right. But \d means one char (one digit in your case).
So you have to use \d+ where + means "one and more" chars.
Therefore the final expression will be:

Search for:

Replace with:

That's all I verified it works perfectly.

Yeah we search for:

but i'didn't work anyway.

To be sure we use dreamweaver to see if any html file was linked to one of those gif, and they were!
How can it be possible that Advanced Find and Replace did not find them?

Is it possible that the problem could be in Option impostation?In the tab Batch Replace we have selected:MODIFIER I, MODIFIER M.

Anyway thank you for your support.
I hope you can help me.

Could you send us ( a sample file and resulting
file (how it should be). We will check it out and send you default.cfg
file with needed settings.
As I said it worked fine on our computers. Values of modifiers I and M
are not important in your case.
